We’ve just posted a shitload of dates in Europe for November and December… check them out on the tour page!
Check out this interview from LA Weekly – it has news on GB’s new video for Immigraniada (We Comin Rougher) and pictures from the set!
And while you’re reading, make this your soundtrack: GB’s session for the Radio 1 Punk Show. It’s only online for 4 more days, so don’t forget to listen while you can.
IMMIGRATION NATURALLY ENRICHES CULTURE AND HUMAN RESOURCE OF ANY COUNTRY. JUST LIKE NEW GENES BRING GUSTO INTO ANY GENETIC POOL. IT IS A COMPLICATED SENSITIVE SUBJECT TO CONSIDER WITH CARE AND LOVE, SINCE IT INVOLVES CHANGES OF ENTIRE DESTINIES ALL AT ONCE. IF A COUNTRY’S FOUNDING VALUES INCLUDE WELCOME TO NEWCOMERS, THERE MUST BE A COMMITMENT TO PURSUE THIS ETHIC. IF NEWCOMER IS OFFICIALLY WELCOMED, HE SHALL BE ABLE TO KEEP FEELING WELCOMED ONCE HE IS THERE, RIGHT? NOT INTIMIDATED, THREATENED AND HUMILIATED. AS A BAND OF IMMIGRANTS WE HAVE RECEIVED BOTH HONORS AND WELCOMES THAT REINSURE THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF IMMIGRATION. AND WE VE BEEN GRATEFUL ABOUT IT TO NY EVER SINCE. ESPECIALLY WHEN SEEING OTHER COUNTRIES NOT DOING THEIR BEST. WITH MY OWN EXPERIENCE I MUST SAY U.S. ACTUALLY STANDS OUT AS A BETTER ONE AMONGST OTHERS. HOWEVER WE CAN NOT LOOK THE OTHER WAY WHEN DOUBLE STANDARD AND FACE CONTROL IS TAKEN PLACE. PLEASE LEARN ABOUT THE SITUATION AND TAKE ACTION TO PRESERVE PROGRESSIVE THOUGHT.
